Just to let everyone know that Carfax did keep me from buying a flooded lemon over the weekend. I bought the unlimited reports option and have been running numbers like crazy. Just thought I would share.

Thanks

Thank You! That was quick!

I would rather it have been a Flood but it still looks pretty good as is.
I have bought cars that was salvaged and reconstructed and they turned out to be great cars. My neighbor bought a wreck salvaged 97 Lincoln and it is still going down the road today like nothing ever happened.

Thanks! It's all accurate. It was flooded at the dealership in Pennsylvania in September 2004 with 46,000 miles on it. The salvage company got a PA flood salvage certificate (which is not a title) for it. My uncle bought it at auction in Virginia thinking that since it had a PA salvage certificate he could just flip it to a PA flood title (since he operates out of PA). He couldn't, though, and had to go back to Virginia (where the salvage company is) to get a VA salvage certificate. Then he had to go to the state of PA to get ANOTHER flood salvage certificate for the car. I then took it to NJ to get a salvage title and registration. That's what took so long. The car was actually done in January of 2005 but I didn't get it registered until March.

What's really interesting is the 05/10/2005 inspection. That was for me to get comp/collision insurance on the car. I didn't know that got reported to CARFAX otherwise I'd have indicated a lower mileage than 53,731. I totally made that number up while I was standing there filling out the paperwork. I couldn't remember how many miles were on it when I got it (which was 46k) and guessed it was around 50,000. I had put about 3,000 miles on it at that point so somehow I came up with 53,731. The number should have been around 49,000. The inspector didn't even turn the key to get the actual mileage (which at the time showed 75,500 because the instrument cluster is out of another car).

I have had carfax for about a month and cant beleive some of the stuff that is reported there. Some states even report when it is serviced and what is serviced. Like oil changes, brakes and what not. Its pretty cool.
